Manelloni/CannelottiAfter reading both recipes I linked to, I decided to try a blend of both. In the cupboard, we had 6 regular manicotti shells and a box of oven-ready canneloni shells, so we made Manelloni/Cannelotti!
• block of regular tofu
• thawed frozen spinach
• 1/2 red bell pepper
• about 5 button mushrooms
• 5 chopped and rehydrated sundried tomatoes
• splash of lime juice
• nutritional yeast
• a little FYH mozzarella
• lots of garlic
• italian herbs, with extra basil
After mashing the mix together, I put it in a freezer bag and cut a corner so it could be piped into the noodles. Of course, the bag kept opening up at the top and I made a mess of my apron, which is now drying in the shower :)
The sauce was made with 1 big can of diced tomatoes, 1 cup of leftover canned sauce, 1/2 a red bell pepper, italian herbs and garlic.

On the plate.
The texture was good and it was comforting, overall. Next time I make it, however, I think I'll add more garlic to the mix. I'll definitely make it again.
